    I love them all its hard to put my finger on the one that is my favorite but if I had to I would say the one that they trick ole barny into thinking that he is singing when someone else was off stage singing for him. I dont know the name of the episode.

    Don Knotts also stared in many movies, I enjoyed him in the movie Private Eyes. Here is a blast from the past Don Knotts played the nervous guy, man on the street on the weekly Steve Allen Show. I think he was a greatly underrated actor that more credit should of been given his due. Naturally he was the best deputy of them all in Mayberry.

    Speaking of Andy Griffith, my name is William Andrew. I got the William from a grandfather and the Andy from my older sisters. They'd been watching the Andy Griffith show before the trip to the hospital to see their new baby brother. (1964) When asked for a name, there it was. So yes, I was named for the Sheriff. I guess it's better then "Opie".

    I never linked the shows that had the Darlings in them. Floyd was my favorite character. I liked the one where the 3 escaped convict women had them in a cabin and after they had been rescued, Floyd came out complaining about the burgers burning on the stove and that he wasn't going to be responsible for it.

    I love the Andy Griffith show, and watch it as much as I can. I don't know if I can name my all time favorite episode, but here are a few I love. When the out of town businessman gets stuck in town on a Sunday is very good, Barney teaches Opie about girls, and the Darling episodes, particularly, the one when Barney and Andy have to go up the Darling Cabin, "The boys are all keyed up this morning".

    i like the ones where the party girls from mount pilot
    they call barney bernie and the one has a gravel voice
    and calls andy doll ......thats hilarious to me
    also the escaped killer that vowed revenge on the two
    that turned him was loose and headed to mayberry
    barney went from acting tough to about wetting himself when he heard the news. that was a grat episode.
    liike was said above, i cant think of a bad episode.
    i loved them all.

    Rat, at least Andy didn't have to deliver you, like he did the farmers son who was named after him, remember, the one Barny thought was planting marijuana at night! lol
    The pickle episode is my favorite, then any show where Barny trains new deputies," theres just two kinds of lawmen, the quick and the dead ! " lol :blink: Then Otis gets hit with a tomato ! lol

    ps Did you ever notice that Andy was the only one that smoked cigarettes. I think?

    My favorite episodes were the ones with Ernest T. Bass in them. But all things considered, I never saw an episode of the Andy Griffith Show or Mayberry RFD that I didn't like.

    I always like the one when the escaped conficts were in the county and the state police was trying to find them, telling Andy and the "hillbilly cops" to stay out of it. Then Andy uses good old common sence and finds the crooks making the big state boys feel stupid with all their technical gagits, when all it took was a bit of thinking.

    I have several favorites...It's hard to beat the Kerosine Cucumbers or the one where barney dresses up like a woman to catch some illegal gamblers...but I think can narrow it down to two that I liked even more...

    1. The exploding goat...When the goat supposedly eats some TNT from a shed in the alley behind the sheriffs office. Barney looking for the goat...sees it in the shed...and goes inside...but it's dark. So he lights a match...and sees the cases of dynamite. He starts shaking so badly that he drops the match! The goat is on the lam...they're gathered around in the sheriffs office...and hear a loud BOOM! They all put their hats over their hearts...and say "he was a good goat". Turns out it was a crew blasting...putting in the new highway...Lol.

    2. The one where the counterfeiter comes into town...Barney goes undercover in civillian clothes...and is lounging around in the hotel lobby. He thinks he's all disguised...and incognito...hiding behind the newspaper with eye holes cut out in it. The hotel clerk says..."what are you doing dressed up like that Barney?"

    There's probably several I'm not remembering...they're all so good. I remember watching the Andy griffith show on sunday evenings when I was growing up with my grandma and grandpa...it came on right before Marlin Perkins' Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom...which was followed by the Wonderful World of Disney. I always lived for Sunday nite tv...IF...I wasn't out hunting or fishing that is...Lol.
